Prep!

January 08, 2015

Many of you have embarked on some type of nutrition challenge and for that I commend you.  I am in the same boat.  We have decided to take our lives back from the sweets and treats – and the ensuing afternoon insulin hangover or bloat that they produce.

But after a day or 2, approved we realize it isn’t that simple.

My first piece of advice to all you nutrition warriors: Be prepared!

Shop, do meal prep, pack your lunch.  Do everything you can to avoid the deviation, or temptation, to break from your new plan, especially this early.

Second, find support.

Sarah has started an awesome “Getting Dirty with the Whole30” Facebook page.  Like this page, and see what other CFO athletes are doing to take positive control of their nutrition.  Planning meal ideas, support, questions, it’s all there.

Finally, know you are not alone, and your experience is not totally unique.  Like Tyler Durden said, you are not a unique or beautiful snowflake. Whole30 has a really good, if not a little (ok, maybe a lot) overly dramatic, day to day experience of what cleaning up your nutrition really feels like.

Yes, you may be feeling like a Grumpy Gus (or Gertie), a Tired Timmy (or Tiffany) or a Hungry Hank (or Hillary).  Not only is this normal, it is expected.  The goal for me is usually to get 7-10 days into this, when you begin to see the benefits of clean eating.  Then, when you are feeling good, inflammation is a thing of the (not to distant past) and workouts become easier.

Now, if someone can explain to me how to not get bored with sweet potatoes, I’ll let you write a post. 

Don’t forget our Food Challenge will start mid February. It will be paleo/whole30ish so start researching and planning your journey.
